My wish is to make you live your best trip. This is why all my choices of meetings, discoveries or accommodation are guided by this desire to transmit to you, through the Original Travels circuits, all the authenticity that a country can offer.
During my stays, I take the time, in each city, to visit hotels, lodges, and homestays. I only select those who have a particular soul, those who combine comfort and authenticity. In the desire to offer responsible tourism, I always favor small structures on a human scale to large hotel complexes.
In addition to the essentials, I would like you to discover preserved places, little known to foreigners. During my reconnaissance trips, I take the time to visit places off the beaten track to give you a different experience. The locals will welcome you as friends and will be happy to interact with visitors from around the world.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"We run tours in the following areas; Atlas mountains, Sahara deserts, imperial cities.
We specialise in Hiking trips, 4WD tours, luxury travels, Mountain biking, Family holidays, cultural tours, culinary trips."
How did you get involved in travel?
"Having grown up in the Atlas Mountains, my passion for adventure travel was kindled at an early age. I began my career in tourism industry since 2006, leading groups in the Atlas mountains and Sahara, then i started working as product manager for several local Tour operators before I decided to found OT. Voyages. Being a travel agent is inspiring others to explore new places, discover a new culture, and meet different and wonderful people."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

Reaching the top of the Toubkal summit (The highest peak on earth in the Berber language) was an overwhelming moment for me as a child and an unforgettable experience!

Sep 30 - Oct 7, 2022
Our trip was very busy but so interesting.
We felt taken care of by our local guides and driver. The days flew by and the vast distances we covered were appreciated.
Just a few points:
- several seatbelts did not work in the van.
- one tour guide did spend a bit too much time taking our group to his market sellers who presented a tough sell for their product. It made for a long tour day - mentally. A bit more free time in the market would have been nice.
- having a printed... read more
A Week in Morocco

A week is not enough… Said did an excellent job with my request to see Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara. As a last minute change I requested a night in Essaouira and he readily accommodated.
Our tour guide for Marrakech was Abdul, the food tour was amazing. I’m so glad we did it.

Magical family trip to Morocco!

We had a magical trip to Morocco thanks to KimKim and our amazing driver and local guides!
We traveled with three kids (ages 4-9), my mother-in-law and two parents (my husband and me). We started in Marrakesh, went to Boalne Dades, Merzouga/the desert, Fes and then Casablanca as our flight departed from there.
The desert and Camp Tiziri was a lifetime favorite memory, but the entire trip was amazing. Our driver Samir was so kind and went out of his way to make us comfortable. Our... read more

Sep 30 - Oct 7, 2022
The local company, Original tours, was quick to reply with any questions, requests or issues along the way. Our driver drove us safely but we would suggest that the vans have working seat belts for passengers. Accommodations were good except for the Kasbah in Bonaire Dades. It was a little lower in standard of both rooms and food. Overall a good experience. It was our choice to cover a lot of territory so the days were long but we got to see and do a lot!! read more

My daughter and I spend 6 wonderful days crossing Morocco and could not have been more pleased with our driver Nouri and our local guides. From private cooking classes and sunrise balloon rides to market tours and our beautiful accommodations, we were given the red carpet treatment everywhere we went. They were even able to handle some last minute itinerary changes as well as minor medical issues in stride.
We will absolutely use KimKin in the future and would not hesitate to recommend... read more
Trip of a lifetime to Morocco
Jun 9 - Jun 29, 2022
We, like so many people, had a lot of wanderlust built up from the pandemic years. We also had a few family milestones come up this year. So we wanted a really special trip and we let our graduating high school senior pick the destination -- Morocco. That was the full extent of our ability to plan. We didn't want to be on a big all-inclusive tour, but neither could we manage a fully independently-planned itinerary.
Kimkim came to the rescue!
Our local specialist team planned a... read more
Hi - I totally recommend KimKim in Morocco ; Kudos to the team!
Aug 5 - Aug 14, 2022
Hi - I totally recommend KimKim in Morocco for organizing your next trip. Our experience has been fantastic! The planning process - ahead of the trip - was a smooth ride. I continued to make quite a lot of changes to the itinerary, but Abdel and Said (with whom I communicated online via the kimkim website) remained calm and patient, and provided speedy and thoughtful answers to all my requests and questions.
Then, during the trip itself, we remained in touch with Said (via Whatsapp) to... read more

Original Travels is a fantastic travel agency for Morocco that we highly recommend.

Trip of a lifetime!
Aug 1 - Aug 11, 2022
We had the most amazing time exploring Morocco with our guide (now someone we consider our friend and brother) Faysal! Not only is he so incredibly knowledgeable, but he is one of the warmest, kindest people we have ever met. He connected with every member of our family, and even arranged a special birthday dinner for one of the members of our group—with the band singing happy birthday and waitstaff bringing a cake with sparklers.☺️ We cannot say enough good things about Faysal, truly. ... read more

Our daily guides were amazing! Especially these individuals: Muhammad in Fes, Osama in Marrakech, and Amed in Merzouga Also Mohammed in The Dades Valley was the... read more
Karim - Morocco for 9 days

Morocco was a trip that I will truly never forget. I was in Morocco for 9 days with my boyfriend and Karim was our personal driver.

Throughout our trip with Karim, he would explain to us interesting facts about Morocco and the Berber life which made this trip a truly unforgettable cultural experience.
Karim is extremely reliable, trustworthy, personable, communicative and also very... read more
8 day trip around Morocco
Jun 26 - Jul 3, 2022
We really enjoyed our 8 day trip around Morocco! It was extremely helpful to have Abdellah plan our itinerary. He listened to our priorities and made adjustments when we asked him to. I also appreciated that he helped us make some last minute restaurant reservations once we were already on the trip. We also really liked our drive, Soufian, who was really friendly and punctual throughout the trip. All of the guides in each location were knowledgable and made exploring more interesting. ... read more
Jun 27 - Jul 5, 2022
It is hard to put into words how wonderful our trip was. We really feel a special connection to Morocco after this trip and cannot wait to return. We felt very safe and well cared for during the entire trip - even when an incident outside of anyone's control happened, so many people sprang into action to ensure that we were cared for - we truly could not have asked for more. If you are considering visiting Morocco, you should. You will not regret it!! read more

We had an amazing time in Morocco. My husband and I travelled with our 6 month old for 12 days. Throughout the trip planning Abdellah was very accommodating and gave us a wealth of events, activities, and recommendations to create an amazing itinerary.

He made sure to maximize the overlap of our itinerary with that of my brother's to make both of our trips memorable.

Beautiful vast country with varied topography that can take you from old madinas to desert to high mountains and Forrest’s and beaches.
May 17 - May 25, 2022
What I learned on this trip is that prices for the trip could vary depending on the local specialist you end up getting through Kim Kim. A friend of mine decided to visit Morocco the same time I was going. So she reached out to Kim Kim, got a different local specialist ended up with the same itinerary, same selected hotels, her stay was even slightly longer by two days as she also visited Casablanca and her cost was lower than mine. She also got superior accommodation than we did in terms... read more
